This includes a further increase of up to NKr 5bn ($US 477.8m) for the already delayed NKr 30.9bn Follo Line, as well as a risk that this may not be completed in December 2022 as previously expected. This is due to contractors going bankrupt, and more difficult ground conditions than expected. Infrastructure manager Bane Nor is now reviewing the project, and is set to provide an updated cost framework.
The report also states that the cost of the NKr 10.4bn Sandbukta – Moss – Såstad project could increase by up to NKr 3bn, due to the strain put on the supplier market by the large number of projects currently underway.
The 10km Drammen – Kobbervikdalen and the 13.6km Nykirke – Barkåker double-track projects are expected to be completed at their originally-estimated budgets of NKr 12.2bn and NKr 6.6bn respectively, even though annual costs are expected to increase in 2020 and 2021. The Drammen – Kobbervikdalen project is also expected to be completed one year earlier than planned, opening in 2024.
“The government will come back to how to solve the challenges of increased investment needs in the rail sector,” says Bane Nor CEO, Mr Gorm Frimannslund. “In the meantime, we are continuing to work on the projects in accordance with the current plan.”
